Life Path Number 5

Those with a Life Path of 5 seek freedom above all else. They are adventurers, having a restless nature, and being on the go, constantly seeking change and variety in life. They have a free spirit and need to have variety in their day. If they do not live the adventure, their lives become way too dramatic.

They love meeting new people, trying new things, and living life for today, and curiosity leads them to constantly try to find the answers to life's questions. "Conservative" is a word that is probably never used to describe them, as they love taking risks, and hate routine and repetition.

Fives have a hard time settling down and have a fear of being trapped or smothered in a relationship. Their love of freedom extends beyond concern only for their own freedom, and they have a genuine concern for the freedom and welfare of others. Although Fives are extremely compassionate, their focus on adventure and curiosity can also distract them and keep them from being aware of the feelings of those around them. Furthermore, because they are always seeking the next adventure, their life can lack direction, and this can cause them to become discontent and impatient.

Fives are very persuasive and excel at motivating people which makes them ideal candidates to become salesmen. Any career requiring travel is also a great fit for those with Life Path number 5, since it will keep them away from the routine of many other jobs, otherwise they may feel a sense of restlessness if they get stuck in a mundane or repetitive job environment. Fives are also very versatile, which makes many other career choices suitable for them. A person with a lot of 5's in their chart will want to be their own boss. This person will not enjoy working a 9 to 5 job where they have to report to someone else each day.

Life path number 5 is the number of freedom and change. Below are some key points you might want to take into consideration to help you on your path …

Don't try to deny who you are. Security is a great thing, but you need your escapes. Find a way to satisfy that wandering urge or you'll be miserable.

Aim for a career that lets you have adventures. You are capable of great originality in both thought and action. You could do something as dramatic as being a photographer for National Geographic or as simple as being a flight attendant.

You can be self-indulgent, especially if you let yourself get bored. Allow yourself to enjoy your spirit of adventure and you'll be able to find excitement in a walk around the block. If you can't travel, at least try new restaurants.

You are sensual, but don't bask in it. Don't forget to learn about yourself and other people while you explore.

I use 5 a lot, but it’s when I reply messages​. I have to use 5 of the same emoji. It’s weird but comfortable​. I prefer even numbers to odd numbers. Cars that I drive have the number 5 in them as well. For instance the 525i Bmw & the two 325i BMW’s. My birth date is 25/06/1981


Lizie February 28, 2017 at 11:28 pm

What’s mine ? 12/28/99


seven March 4, 2017 at 9:01 pm

12 = 3
28 = 10 = 1
1999 = 28 = 10 = 1
Life path number= 3 + 1 + 1 = 5

Vinny January 13, 2017 at 4:33 pm

Hi! Im also a lifepath 5 but to my surprise i have my 3 pinnacles numbers 9!!!
Do you guys have some insight about what could I do??


seven January 17, 2017 at 9:27 pm
martin mocha January 5, 2017 at 1:44 pm

Plagued by constant repeating of the number seven:
The calculation shows me as a “5” BUT, there is a bizarre series of events going on for over 10 years that seems to show or display the number 7 to me nearly 98% of the time. E.g., when ever I look at any digital clock in the house, car etc., it always ends on 7, if I am cooking in the microwave and look at the count down, it always precisely hits 7, when I mix colors or edit other tools in Photoshop while illustrating, they always hit 7, my social security number ends in a seven, but worse, my mother became very ill in 1997, and she eventually passed on September 7, 2000 in room 407. When I get into the car, nearly 95% of the time, the clock ends on a 7 plus the speedometer, and temperature will all end on 7s. When I tweet, regardless of the content, the characters always end up with 7 characters remaining. The kitchen clock is the most tenacious in terms of ALWAYS displaying a time ending in 7 regardless of what time of day I happen to walk in and look and more annoying, I often get hit with a “double 7” in the time. Is the number attracting me or am I attracting the number…could this mean anything? Could it be some unknown magnetic type field in play or is it desperately trying to communicate something and if so WHAT? I’m almost open to any suggestion no matter how unorthodox or out of the proverbial box.


Ruth January 15, 2017 at 5:54 am

I would assume that you are on a very holy path. Good for you, you are a beautiful loving spirit and you must keep going as you are and spreading your kindness and light throughout the world, you are doing great, remember, fear is an illusion. You are love x

Jeanette November 28, 2016 at 4:43 pm

seven November 28, 2016 at 7:34 pm

4 it is …. 9 + 1 + 3 = 13/4


Halona Black November 15, 2016 at 5:55 pm

I swear, my picture should be at the top of this page because this describes me to the letter!


Sean July 3, 2016 at 5:58 am

Namaste… I’m a virgin to this but has the perfect angels that are guiding me to understand thus how I found you… long story short I see 11:11 and synchronicity in numbers every time I see numbers on clocks digital and analog phones billboards license plates invoices everything… and of course I was thinking I’m crazy… for the last two years… but have accepted my role in this thing called The Cosmos… help me please be gentle… I believe my Life purpose is a 5 DOB 5/14/1975 I read your name had a purpose as well my given name equals a 9 and funny thing I noticed the 5 is the significant number in my name having a total of 25 with 2 Ns and 3 Es totaling 25 highest total of all numbers and as I send phone is 50% at 7:57am I’m I going crazy???


Sean July 18, 2016 at 11:00 am

Hi I’m very much a beginner and in need of some kind of guide , for I am a child to all this


seven July 18, 2016 at 7:58 pm

Hi Sean, we offer full numerology readings on our site for free –

It’s a good place to start : )


AgN November 4, 2016 at 5:59 pm

It’s weird how things fall together randomly all the time. Only awareness provides the answers you may be seeking. I understand your feeling of “Purpose” and the “turtle like pace” needed to gain proper knowledge and bring forth the answers we seek. Some call this coincidence along with many other names. I consider it “Life’s Red Flags” that help us answer “Life’s Questions” like that of putting together a “puzzle.”

Puzzles take time to complete, what makes a puzzle’s progression easier and more effective is an example provided of the completed puzzle. This helps us narrow down pieces using “coincidence” of color, shape, etc. to eventually find the piece sought. Sometimes we are lucky and spot them instantly. Then we often find other pieces that apply to the surrounding piece we seek and so on and so on. Trial and error create experiences to gain understanding and further our knowledge to questions we seek. Knowledge is gained through understanding; When other’s supply the answers be sure to understand how they came to this conclusion. Awareness is a key to puzzles. Only realize, puzzles are a task, sometimes we take home a (perceived) 100 piece puzzle set, when opened and inspected, it turns out to be a 100,000 piece set. Will you attempt the puzzle then?

Hope this is helpful in some way. May peace and wellness be with you through all of life’s Journeys.

My birday is 5/14 but of 97 and my name has 9 letters. Just found that coincidence funny…


latreze February 23, 2016 at 8:44 pm

Hi, how are you?
my name is latreze Alexis Gonzalez. life code #5 and I have master code #11. D.o.b 5-7-91. I studied meanings .I’m very interested in numberology but I seem to be stuck between what comes next after Learning meaning. how do would I apply it to my life?


Marc June 30, 2016 at 7:45 am

Hi Latreze,

In short. The next step is to stop learning and start believing.
We can hold the knowledge in our mind but until it fills our hearts, we still feel empty and continue to search.

Knowledge is great but silence is the greatest lesson of all

Wishing you love and abundant growth on your journey.



Norman nuckles December 30, 2015 at 10:26 am

According to a site where I looked up ‘nuckles’ it said my life path was 22. Using yours it is a 5 which is most accurate. Please clarify.


seven December 30, 2015 at 1:15 pm

Life path number is based on your birth date so I cannot help you out until you provide it here for me. Also, the single digit life path number would be the same regardless of which website you look at.


Ny June 30, 2016 at 3:35 pm

Norman, I believe the website you are referencing provided your expression number 22/4 based solely on your last name “Nuckles.” What is interesting is that you only analyzed your last name. This is ok when looking at the pieces to understand how one is effecting the larger picture, but to get a more accurate understanding of the energies influencing your life through your name’s vibration you would need to look at your whole name as it appears on your birth certificate. The systems that I am familiar with determines the destiny number a.k.a. “expression number” by using your whole name to offer an accurate result. I do not know if you have middle name or not, but the name Norman Nuckles returns the soul urge of 15/6, expression number 52/7, personality 37/10/1 and hidden expression 5. What you’ve read above, authored by Seven (I believe), is specific to the life path number and is based on the inquirer’s date of birth date, using the Pythagorean calculation. I encourage you to go back and look at your whole name. It gives the Karmic lessons for Norman Nuckles as 7 and 8, also, which I think you will find very interesting and even encouraging! I hope this helps.


Cathy October 7, 2015 at 3:35 pm

I’m supposedly a 5 but none of this is remotely like me.


Anna Conigliaro October 4, 2015 at 7:08 pm

Tbh I feel like some of this fits me but I don’t feel like all of this fits me


devlon August 4, 2015 at 11:22 am

From an early age I felt like I didn’t fit in and was depressed often numerology enlightened me in a way that only the bible has done to give a comparison as far as making me aware of important crucial facts that can make a possible profound diference depending on the choices you make


Kellie June 3, 2015 at 4:54 pm

Hello, I love my free spirit but love the thought of security as well. What number is a 5 compatible with? My children are numbers 5 and 7. Which works well. I haven’t had much luck with partners. Being such a free spirit will I ever find the one to settle with? My career has been the same, I get closed in and feel costrophobic, think I’ve found a good choice currently as a massage therapist working partime employed and partime self-employed. I’m a 23rd June Cancerian which works for the healing part of my being but the number 5 conflicts with my need for emotional security. So confusing lol
Peace and Love


seven June 3, 2015 at 6:30 pm

Hi Kellie, this link might help : ) –


Deepak April 26, 2015 at 9:48 am

Hi, i have few querries..
as per your compatibility chart, have tried changing spelling of my u think ‘deppak bijalwan’ instead of current name ‘deepak bijalwan’ will help in aligning things better for me??
if not, plz advice..thanks


seven April 26, 2015 at 7:30 pm

In Pythagorean numerology, most of the core numbers are based on the name given to you when you entered this world, so changing your name will not have any effect on these numbers. If you are looking to correlate your life path number with a name change, you are probably looking for a Chaldean numerology site … not this one. cheers : )


Christopher britt February 24, 2015 at 7:21 pm

The life number is very true it describes me “to the teeth”… This more accurate than the horoscope… I’m a number 5. Im 32 an all my life I’ve been a risk taker. Im an entrepreneur and I Havnt worked a 9-5 since
2000. And I rap and act and travel all tha time. Im gonna start judging people on their life number.


Kasandra January 29, 2015 at 10:46 pm

I am a 4 but I’m not. I’m a 5 which fits me perfectly. I’m nothing like 4. How come?
Birthday 5 the Feb 1950.


Alex April 24, 2015 at 9:05 pm

You were born con the 5th day which means everyday is an adventure forma you 😉


joanne December 31, 2014 at 7:54 am

Wow. I just discovered my Life Path Number is 5, and your description fits me perfectly. The question that I have, Is how do I reign myself in to fit to normal society?


Mary Halloumis March 4, 2015 at 2:53 am

I have the same question for me haha!!


Alex April 24, 2015 at 9:08 pm

Joanne, Mar y, the ley is to live un tour own world and invite others to join you during spontaneous adventures


Jermaine May 28, 2015 at 8:56 am

I am just discovering my Life Path number as well and I realize that I don’t fit in what we consider “normal” society. Number 5s are supposed to be different and daring. We are meant to inspire others. Most people are afraid to take risks or to try something different. If you notice, many celebrities have the life path number 5. We all know celebrities are natural born rebels. It’s so scary to finally understand who you are and where you should be.


Richard November 3, 2015 at 7:38 am

Trust in yourself!! You don’t want to fit into normal society because they are not fully aware and in a way act like mindless zombies! In a manner of speaking society doesn’t even exist. Currently at the collective concious level humanity is wrought full of prejudices and thinking errors that are now being weeded out by the activation of 5 th dimensional awareness aka heart based conciousness. . The era of debt slavery ego based conciousness has been slowly but steadily crumbling apart to make way for humanity to evolve to the next level. So in a nutshell just love yourself and others with unconditional love and trust me you won’t regret it!! Don’t get me wrong though this isn’t easy but well well worth it!! I know with the media and all the TV shows we watch they constantly in one way or another tell you how you should feel how you should dress etc etc. Makes ya keep 2 nd guessing your self !! That’s what the people in power want you to do!! Break free of the societal hold !! Don’t play into it!! Besides no matter what if you try to fit in it’ ll never be good enough!! I know because I almost killed myself trying !! Be who you are truly and hold unconditional love in every direction. Love loves what is not what should be!!!


bree October 5, 2014 at 11:33 am

I’m a 5 and it fits me almost perfectly!


Arena January 25, 2014 at 5:58 am

Up early, watching an episode of “I Love Lucy” one of my all time classic fav’s.. an episode about her getting absorbed in horoscopes and numerology she called Ricky a 5; what a funny episode. I have recently been called the Five by someone; I didn’t know what it meant, my birthday is August 29th 1971. A poet and visual artist by Nature but haven’t fulfilled any of my artistic capabilities professionally..It troubles me ..I don’t like change much but, many qualities described do sound like me.


seven February 1, 2014 at 10:58 am

Hi Arena, your life path number is 1 …
august = 8
29 = 11
1971 = 18 = 9

8 + 11 + 9 = 28 = 10 = 1


Sara January 24, 2014 at 4:23 am

So interesting. I got Life Path 1 and it sounds nothing like me. My ex got Life Path 5 and every single aspect seems to be the opposite of how he actually is.


5 who is a 3 October 14, 2013 at 1:17 am

I am supposed to be a 5 according to the calculator, but it doesn’t describe me at all. I think 3 sounds a lot more like me, even the negative parts of it… It says my brother is a 3, but that is so opposite of him it is almost laughable. 7 describes him perfectly though. 7 with a good dash of 5.


5 who is NOT a 3! November 5, 2013 at 3:08 am

When I read this description initially, I didn’t agree with it. I decided to ask for a free personal reading to see if it would be more accurate for me.. It was the most accurate thing I have ever read in my entire life! Not only was it accurate, but it gave me such insight into myself that it was actually a rather intense experience for me to read it. I feel like I leveled up a bit in life just for having read it. You have a gift and I thank you for sharing it with me. I plan to donate something because you deserve it for sure. You really helped clear up so many things for me. Thank you!


Rosie October 11, 2013 at 3:27 am

I am no 7 and I completely agree no 5 is perfect fit for 7.

I do have loner nature in myself but if I am pair with no 5 individual – that can change my life! I love my solitude but at the same time I also love freedom!! I value both at the same important level! Can’t wait to be with no 5 in my life!


Kemila September 17, 2013 at 1:51 am

I’m a (3+2) 5 and if you go to my website “about” page, my nature of exploration and adventrure come through and it’s perfectly explained on this page.

Maybe I can copy this page and put it word-for-word of me-description on my website. This is so me.


sabrina August 7, 2013 at 1:58 pm

I am a so called 5, I do not fit this at all. I dislike adventures and change and hate public speaking and motivating. I think this is hooka.


wendy August 18, 2013 at 5:25 pm

I would date and married a five.Love there sense of freedom. Adventure. Like that they are they are compassionate. I would sacrifice and meet in the middle with them. Like to meet new people.


Sasha October 13, 2013 at 8:17 am

Maybe your a 41/5. Like… maybe you’re a Taurus, but have number 5 as a life path. It These people tend to always fight with their diffirent wills. One part of you wants adventure and change, the other part absolutly hates it.


dondong December 10, 2013 at 9:12 am

I’m a “5” (but, really, a ten ;), and I agree with you. I LOVE my freedom — from ahsswholes trying to control & manipulate me. So, being my own boss, is the only thing that “resonates” as the ahsswholes like to say. But the go-go-go adventure, and everything else is bull sheet.


Renee July 15, 2013 at 4:51 pm

I am a 7 and a 5. Reason for this is I was conceived on a 5 life path. This feels more accurate to especially when reading the above. I do struggle for security an get over serious about it, then start creating dramas because seriousness is boring. But am always uplifted at even just thought of travel an adventure.


Yohie June 23, 2013 at 3:06 am

ADVENTURER! That’s what I am.


lanie June 9, 2013 at 7:55 am

what is my life number my birthday june 18,1979 thanks i will wait


seven June 9, 2013 at 7:03 pm

Hi Lanie,

june = 6
18 = 9
1979 = 26 = 8

Your life path number = 6 + 9 + 8 = 23/5


shanmuga May 20, 2013 at 2:52 pm

When i read the life path of 5 , it is surprising that i am reading my behavior and character. Amazing calculation .. i thank the author ..
